Today, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited Chinook Trail Elementary School and Legacy Peak Elementary School in Colorado Springs. She spoke with students about how to recognize and prepare for severe weather in Colorado.

First, she spoke with the 3rd graders at Chinook Trail. The students were great listeners and had very good questions for Alex after the presentation.

Then she stopped by Legacy Peak Elementary to visit the kindergarteners. They were enthusiastic about learning and loved the hail experiment with the hair dryer and ping pong balls.
